Woman gets longer jail visit than expected

Staff writer

A rural Marion woman’s visit to the county jail ended up being longer than she expected Thursday when she was booked on suspicion of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

Rexana J. Siebert, 43, had caused issues a week before when she came to visit her friend, Richard Litton. She had been told not to come back the following week, undersheriff David Huntley said.

“She showed up and was not supposed to be here for visitation,” Huntley said.

Jailer Jim Philpott reportedly told Siebert she could not come in, but she tried to follow him into the office anyway.

She then screamed and yelled at Philpott, Huntley said.

“She put her foot in the office door to attempt to block the door from closing,” he said.

She made it into the office for a short time. Philpott removed the inmate from the visitation area, then removed Siebert.

“If she’d have just calmed down, she’d have been allowed to walk out the door,” Huntley said.
